  • The experience with the physician was extremely positive. The front desk was a bit disappointing. The receptionist could not find find my appointment.

  • Oftentimes the front desk admin team is stressed out and not friendly but for the most part I always have an excellent experience with the providers and PA.

  • It was the only time I have seen this provider other than initial visit. He seemed to be very nice doctor, but seem to know nothing about my health or what to do about it. He just said, asked me what different questions and he said well, I can't give you an answer, but I'll see if I can dig something up. I don't think I go back there again.

  • Hey all were professional, polite,accommodating, and caring. They even put up with my sick sense of humor. Dr. Byon, by far is the best physician I have ever seen. He treated me like I was a lifelong friend.

  • I have visited many doctors throughout the years with concerns about my white blood cell count and the unexplained pains throughout my body. Each doctor has attributed these things to my health anxiety, without doing much to look into the issue. This is the first time I've ever felt like the doctor really listened to me, takes me concerns seriously, and is doing something to look into the issue. This is easily the best experience I've had with a primary care doctor.

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
